@ #2: Balesio is not a good choice. Staff of companies usually cannot open the files which are shrunk with Balesio. With Batch Picture Resizer shrunk pictures everybody will be able to open.

Asks for "Select Destination Folder". What does that mean? Or what is a valid response? Keeps asking me over and over.

I agree with John #10.

I've been using Image Resizer for years. It's a simple freeware program that uses the right click function in Windows Explorer.

You can either tag a bunch of files, and re-size them in the current folder (and keep the originals) if you want.

Or, you can right click drag them to a new folder, and chose to copy or move and re-size them on the fly. It all happens VERY quick. I just tried 50 hi-res files (3.5-4.2 megabyte .jpg's) that open to around 21-24 megabytes raw files, and took about 10sec. Of course it's almost instant with more common files sizes from amateur cameras or cell phones.

The new files range from around 200-400k depending on the size of the original. And that is if you choose to re-size in the "large" file which measures 1920X1080. I use this size the most, because the photos are nice and big when viewed in an email, or online.

It has 4 preset sizes, or you can set your own custom size. And is pretty much idiot proof. There is no learning curve.

The utility is pretty much bullet proof, and very handy to use, because it becomes part of your right click menu. There is never any need to launch a separate program!

What I would like is a program that can resize a batch of various sized photos to a specific height and then maintain the aspect ratio as far as the width. So for instance, I have a photo that is 400x600 and another that is 700x800 and a 1200x1500. If I need them all to be 600 pixels high, it should dynamically adjust the width to maintain the aspect ration. So I would end up with a 400x600, a 525x600 and a 480x600. Does anyone know of one that will handle that?
Thanks,
Mike

Again an offering that gets rejected by Bitdefender as having a virus.
This seems to be happening more often - anyone from Givaway of the Day able to shed light on why Bitdefender is flagging this? (I'm assuming false +ve)

I installed and registered the product, but the program window truncates, or cuts off the right 30% of the program window and where I presume is the browse button to set the output folder, the controls are cut off. I installed it onto a Windows XP machine.

As far as pure resizing goes, I use constantly and heartily endorse / recommend PLiska Resizer, download from Softpedia (http://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/PLiska-Image-Resizer-Download-24119.html). I've used it in both directions.

Enjoy,

In the dialogue box there is a tick box [Maintain original aspect ratio].
Even if you tick this, it has no effect and is over-ridden if you enter percentages in the New Width and New Height that will distort the image.

e.g. if you enter 80% New Width and 50% New Height, the resulting resized photo will be distorted; even though you had ticked the [Maintain original aspect ratio].

This program worked quickly and well on XP sp3 and has a number of interesting features, including the 18 types of resizing already mentioned, file type conversion, watermarking, width and height switching, smart cropping, grayscale rendering, colour normalizing and various rotation options including auto, which appears to preserve the original orientation.

For those with MS Office, I have also found the Office Picture Manager very useful for resizing tasks. It allows single images to be resized to selected or exact sizes and also batch processing using the export command, which permits other tasks, such as renaming and / or format conversion to be performed within the same process.

Hi, I naturally read Comments and Reviews here before downloading, but also on Developer's site (if there is any). I know that today this Software is a free Gift, but wonder about first Post there.. 'Enlarging' images (or increasing dpi for printing etc) is as important as resizing and I would like to know if this Software (for their asking price) can 'deliver' what that (unsatisfied) customer is talking about?? Perhaps this App mainly specializes in resizing pictures, but an additional 'sweetener' (if purchasing) would be the ability to increase dpi of an image and if that WORKS in Tryout option only, but doesn't after purchasing - I too would be annoyed and asking myself how come!

Can this Developer promise that's not the case any longer? I came across similar 'catch' when trying out animated gifs Resizer which worked absolute magic in tryout, so I bought it. It never performed the same afterworlds (I'm talking about lossless resize from massive 8 MB File to 600 something KB obtained in Tryout!), but at least I got my money back. Might not be important, but it's all about Customer's Trust and Reputation!?..

Quit apart from their interesting use of the term, "cheap", their description leaves me disappointed:
"The picture resizer can be used to reduce the size of your photos so that they are more appropriate for publishing on the Internet, emailing to family and friends or simply to save space on your hard drive."

Reducing an image is easy, few programmes are unable to perform this function adequately.

"Resize" is of greatest value if a small image can be effectively enlarged.

The 18 different algorithms sound intriguing, does the programme include clear explanations as to which should be used when and why?

If it does, and if these algorithms mean that images can be enlarged (such as when the camera was set to "email standard" and you want to make a framed print) then that would cast a very different light.

Thanks again GOTD for bringing this to our attention, I'll wait to see if the above points are answered before installing.

I'm confused about the price.
It says here today's offer is the $49.99 product.
The website says the home version is $34.99.
The special offer link here just after the description says Purchase an Unlimited personal license (with support and updates) at 70% discount. The price for that is $49.99
So what's being offered here today? Is it the $35 home version or the $50 one?

Good software which does what it claims flawlessly.

However there are tons of freeware out there which can do more or less the same things for FREE....

http://www.faststone.org/FSResizerDetail.htm
http://www.iwesoft.com/product/34/image-resizer

So 50 Bucks for an app like this is senseless, in my view.

And how about "ImBatch"?

In short it's a batch image processor, designed to EDIT multiple image files in batch with a couple of mouse click by using SCRIPTS.
Supports ALL popular image formats out there (BMP, TIFF, GIF, JPEG, PCX, PNG, TGA, PIX, JP2, J2K, PSD, WDP, HDP), plus over 100 different image file formats, including RAW ones from a massive number of digital cameras, once all 3 official built-in plugins (DCRaw, ImageMagick, JBig) are enabled.
What makes it special and better, compared to other batch image processors out there, is its nice looking GUI and above its “Task Structure” functionality.
In fact, with this function, users not only can combine several tasks to make a processing sequence conversion (resize, rotate, applying watermark & effects, set/edit/remove EXIF and IPTC Tag from photos, creade 3D images etc...), but can also change the order of tasks and even add or remove some tasks twice or more.
Then, once applied all editing tasks in batch, this FREE GEM gives you the ability to publish your entire edited photo collection to FACEBOOK album in a BATCH mode, rather than adding each photo manually

Cool, isn't it??

If you are looking for an image optimizer helping you visually adjust compression ratio parameters, while keeping minimum filesize and high image quality (so great for web photo galleries and email attachments), try also this FREE and PORTABLE gem:

Downloaded with no issues. Installation went off without a hitch. No waiting for an email to register.

Tried this on multiple files in an attempt at both reducing and enlarging. Reducing was absolutely no problem and went faster than expected. I took a few photos that were 3600 wide and reduced them to 100, which would be an avatar size. Very good results.

I took the same 3600 wide files and expanded them out to 4600. Also worked well and the results were much better than expected.

However, when resizing the 100 wide up they did pixelate as I expected them to. This is not a big deal when you already have the larger files readily available.

I'll be keeping this one for a backup as my other resizer sometimes does not work with some files.

Thanks GAOTD

I just happened to need something like this tonight. I tried the Swiss one that #2 posted. Didn't do a good job at all. Everything was blurry but yes the size was incredible small (141). I tried this one, and things were not as small, twices as large (340K) as FILEMINIMIZER but very readable. The Original size was 1639K. Now Light Resizer, a previous giveaway, came in at 204K, somewhere in between FILEMINI and today, and had the best sharpness and accuracy . Thanks folks. Kathy

Downloaded OK in WinXP SP3.
It appears to work well, the only slight criticism I have is the lack of any sort of warning that the process has ended,when just a small amount of files are being processed.
Thank you GOTD,and SoftOrbits.

I skip my comment on their statement "cheap program" but it is the first developer here on GAOTD site who says (in the product description on their website) about several JPEG lossless operations. At least they know about latest lossless technology. All previous developers just promised the highest quality.

If you need to batch process a group of images to save on size try the following program:-

http://www.balesio.ch/fileminimizerpictures/eng/index.php

The image size in bytes will be reduced by more than 95% and more often than not and there is no discernible loss of quality at a normal viewing size.

I haven't tested today's program because in my view the sell such as simple program at such an exorbitant price is frankly a rip-off. All it does is take advantage of very inexperienced computer users who don't know any better.

Installed and registered withou problems on a Win 8.1 Pro 64 bit system.

A Russian company with address.

Upon start a small resizable window opens. You add your pictures or a folder, you define the resize options in pixel or percent, you can do some picture manipulation (grey or "normalized" color) and you resize.

That's done in a simple and understandable way. For the resize freak you can switch between 18 (!) resizing methods from bicubic to Lanzcos or Bessel. Are there more than 18 ? ...

Included is a simple watermark feature with text or image, only text rotation is missing.

This is done in simple, but effective way.

A well made small utility. Does what it claims.

I'll use the built in features in my photo application.
